lost friend.....






....I couldn't help but feel for this little boy when I worked on him last night.
I liken it to one of those really good books that you know would work best with a sad ending, but somehow you find yourself still wishing for the happier one. My heart broke for him when I added the thread, but I knew that it was needed to bring him to completion.

...sometimes it's good to have a few tears in the house, no?

I wish sad endings did not exist either, but I think he is beautiful and perfect.

Stunning. I'm really loving what you are putting out right now. Something so dreamy and melancholy about them, like faded memories.

thanks everyone...
I haven't made anything with a sense of "sadness" in such a while...we are definitely going through some family changes right now, and it is starting to show here. (do you ever make something and then realize,after the fact, what is is about?)

poignant, absolutely. The thread was the perfect touch. Beautiful work indeed.
